|Please provide a brief summary of your suggestion.||
Canberra at it current state is on a live support, it not livable. My family ran Burmese Curry Place in Civic opposite bus interchange from 2008 to March of this year. As a business owner we had parking fined in ran into ten of thousands. Our customers have to think twice should they come for lunch
or dinner, fear of fined and expensive parking. |
Government sucks he blood out of CBD, I remembered growing up there were 10,000 to 20,000 young high school kids to young elders enjoying themself through out the night it feel like a community. Yes a few bad apple here and there. But those time were so exciting everyone were so happy.
|What services do you believe are most important for the Territory?||People happiness is the most important, sense of belonging of group and community. Go to Thailand and you will understand. food is to their happiness, food bring everyone from toddler to old grandma and pa. Food do not discriminate your race your skin colour, what language you speak. But they need to be good value. Food has intrinsic value for community.|
|How can the Government deliver current services more efficiently and productively or to better meet the needs of Canberrans?||
Government look to far ahead to future and don't live in present. it doesn't have an industry base other then government relate field, I am currently live in Blacktown every corner i look it has new industry, logistic, food, building to manufacturing etc.
They need job and affordable cost of living. 1 kg of banana in Blacktown is $1. My wife can stay at home look after our daughter while i work.
|Are there particular services that you consider the Government should stop delivering or should deliver in a different way?||Canberra need all the service that is there. Small businesses don't have the bargaining power as powerful corporation. we need government to level it.|
|Are there any new ways to generate revenue and/or services you consider that the community should make a direct contribution to (a fee for service)?||Developer is the one with answer.|
|What can the Government do to make Canberra even more liveable?||City is the heart of every states and territories. Civic dies so is the territory, it is the first place tourist know to go to. If oversea visitor visit Sydney they go to city as a point of reference not Blacktown or Bondi. First impression is everything.|
